The top-rated reality series searches for the next superstar drag queen. While there are regular judges for the season, there are also guest judges who offer an extra boost of star power to RuPaul's Drag Race. Previous guest judges include Lady Gaga, Paula Abdul, Adam Lambert, Neil Patrick Harris, Dita Von Teese, and countless others.
Aguilera is a first-time judge to RuPaul's Drag Race, but she's definitely not a newbie to the reality show stage. The singer is a veteran with several seasons of The Voice coaching duties under her belt.
'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 10
Fans of the show will be delighted to be treated to 90-minute episodes for the upcoming season. But that's not the only super-charged element of the show. According to RuPaul, the entire season was put together with the intention of taking the competition to new heights.
"To celebrate a decade of Drag Race we've pulled out all the stops," the Emmy-winning host of the show has previously said about the 10th season. "The queens, the challenges, and the shenanigans are off the mother-tucking charts. And I'm thrilled that Untucked is back on VH1. 'Cause, henny, if you ain't watching Untucked, you're only getting half the story. Okurrr?"
RuPaul's Drag Race: Untucked is the behind-the-scenes docu-series that airs in the same season of Drag Race. It used to be released on YouTube, but for the first time, the series makes the leap to VH1. Untucked will air right after the Drag Race episodes.
Fellow judge Ross Mathews is just as awed as everyone with the upcoming season, which he describes as potentially his favorite season of the entire series.
"Season 10 is up even a level further from where we have been," he tells E! News. "I don't know how RuPaul does it, but Ru and the team have managed to take the show to a level — I'm talking quality of O-M-G — that you've ever seen."
The queens of the upcoming season have already been introduced.
RuPaul's Drag Race season 10 begins at 8 p.m. on March 22 on VH1.
